Book Review: The Resemblance by Lauren Nossett

The Resemblance by Lauren Nossett is the author's debut novel taking place in Athens, Georgia at the University of Georgia. A fraternity brother is killed in a hit and run accident, but there's more to it than meets the eye. The driver was smiling when he hit the student and bears an uncanny resemblance to the person he hit. First on the scene of the accident, Detective Marlitt Kaplan is out to prove that she can handle this gruesome case.

First and foremost, I'd like to thank NetGalley and Flatiron Books for the free digital version of the Advanced Readers Copy of The Resemblance by Lauren Nossett in exchange for my honest review. I was excited and honored to receive a copy of this novel.

Right from the start of The Resemblance, it had my attention and was a page turner. There wasn't one slow part. The story was well written, realistic for the most part, and had a wow factor. As for the characters, they were well developed, and most of them were likable, so much so that I am hoping that there is a sequel to follow up with the main character, Detective Marlitt Kaplan.

With fraternity and sorority hazings being more prevalent in the news over the last few years, I was glad that Lauren Nossett didn't glorify Greek Life like other books tend to do. It also made me wonder if many of the hazings that get swept under the rug are political like the one in the novel.

Five out of five stars is what I give The Resemblance by Lauren Nossett. I'm already wanting to go back and reread the novel. Fingers crossed that there is at least one sequel. Even if there isn't, I will definitely buy more novels by this author should she publish more.
